Prefer flash? · Embed · Questions/Feedback?

The story centers on the memories of a writer (Gregory Peck) who is taking a safari in Africa.
He develops a dangerous wound from a thorn prick, and lies awaiting his slow death.
The loss of physical capability causes him to look inside himself - at his memories of the past years, and how little he has actually accomplished in his writing.

Subject: Hemingway's best story
Hemingway's semi-autobiographical story of the same name has a different ending, but otherwise, I think he'd approve. A superb lead actor, fine supporting cast (Leo G. Carroll adds a poignant dignity and a grace note as Harry Street's uncle, Ava Gardner is mesmerizing), excellent script, a Bernard Herrmann score (listen to the beautiful sax solo and French dance music in Paris) = a satisfying film experience. The one star review says: "Too much back story"?! The "back story" IS the story. "Too much dialog"? (as in a symphony has too many notes?) "Not enough story"? (there's nothing BUT story). Who cares about "stock footage"; this film is about human beings, not scenery. Hard to believe the one star and I watched the same film. Hemingway considered this his best story. Solve the riddle of the Snows of Kilimanjaro, and enjoy. Papa, RIP.

Everything i don't like in a film.
But you might like it.
Too much back story, too much dialog, too much stock footage.
Not enough story.
